WHAT?  I'm sorry, but this is simply patently false.  "Red Hat RPMs" 
default to /usr/bin, but "RPM" does NOT default to ANY installation
path.  None.  You have to run ./configure in your spec file with your
own options.  You have to list your files based on where you put them.
And even after you do all *that*, you can still relocate the package
somewhere else in many cases.
